Guests will be sent a credit card authorization form after their room reservation has been processed.

The card provided on this form will be kept on file for the length of your stay to cover any potential apartment damages, lost keys and/or lost access cards.

Complimentary parking is available in Lot 44, the large lot located adjacent to the North Residential Complex. Guests must obtain a parking pass to this lot when they check-in with the desk clerk and must have this pass prominently displayed at all times to avoid potential ticketing and/or towing.
